Hi,

Up until very recently, I've been able to download files without issue. Every time it'd ask "do you want to open or save?". It's no longer doing that, and instead saves them by default. How do I revert this back to asking what I want to do?

Downloads Drop-Down menu mystery and Zoom glitch

I think I may have a ghost in my desktop. 2 events happen with firefox that have followed from a previous pc build. At seemingly random times if Firefox is open and the visible tab has text, as in is not a full tab video stream, all of the text and images will shrink in size and spacing. This is independent of the zoom function as it remains at 100. Zooming to make text larger again looks weird and bulky, refreshing the page however will restore it. This glitch happens even if another application has focus, even if it is fullscreen exclusive. I haven't been able to figure out what kind of shortcut, command, or addon might possibly be able to do this.

The drop-down mystery happens when the visible tab is a full tab stream. Again even if another application has focus, the download drop-down appears and stays until I click somewhere. I've only seen it appear once and it does not look like when I choose to click the drop-down button. The size of the drop-down changed a couple to several times, and I believe the first download item appeared to be highlighted in dark blue, something I can't reproduce with my mouse or keyboard, it only highlights a different color grey. This one makes me nervous as it could possibly be something activating a download and then immediately deleting it from history? I only just recently learned the the menu will appear automatically when downloading something.

I've tried reinstalling Firefox. I don't notice this on edge, though I only have to use it a fraction of the time. I've never noticed any extra commands or text appear that I didn't type or direct in other applications. This somehow shows up after a fresh windows 10 install, and have since replaced keyboard & mouse. I've tried leaving a keylogger over long periods and it never shows anything. I refuse to leave Mozilla, any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading this far :)

When I click on the Firefox icon the app opens in which ever desktop it opened in last, not in the one the user (me that is) is currently in. Annoying but not critical.

This problem appeared after I upgraded to LM 20.3 and the latest FF in Flatpak so I have no idea if the problem is LM or FF or both.

Please bring back the option to let the system print dialog be the default. There's no need to fix what's not broken. I dislike the new FireFox dialog. I like and am used to the system print dialog, it works, does what I want, and it should be brought back for consistency with other applications.

I could previously fix this in about:config, but that option is now ignored.

I understand the desire to try something new, but it makes no sense to improve on what already works. And, to remove the about:config option means your imposing your will on me. FireFox never felt like an imposition before, this is like something I'd expect from Apple, not Mozilla.

Please bring back my choice and make it an easy configuration checkbox, no about:config voodoo.

Thanks!

Recently before the new update I think, when I download something the download icon just turns blue which tells me that the download has finished.

But for some time now, when I download anything the download notification pops up like a window which I have to click something to make it disappear. I don't know why this is happening because I did not install any new add ons from before and after the thing happened. Is there a way to disable it? I don't know why it happened so suddenly but its so annoying because you have to close that notification before you can resume anything else.

Note: The pictures are what I see immediately after the download finished, I did not click anything for it to pop up.

Hello - Can someone provide me a simple explanation of what Firefox considers "Connected Services"? The Connected Services screen says "Everything you are using and signed into" - which I can sort of understand - BUT, what is Firefox DOING with its access to my PC, for one thing? At the Connected Services screen there is no link or button which provides an explanation - as to what Firefox DOES with the Connected Services. Any positive, constructive information will be appreciated. JFC

Out of the blue while sorting my bookmarks, wierd thick yellow dotted lines appeared and surround now every active button i click on in my browser. I tried using a User Chrome.css which did exactly nothing. (Yes it is activated in the config and yes the chrome folders is spelled small and yes it also has the correct css ending). I have no clue why this suddenly appeared and also stayed that way after restarting. Is there any way to fix this ? I use windows10 64 bit and the latest firefox version

I hope this is the right category. I recently switched to Firefox, and while I love both the customization aspect and how privacy-centered it is, I have 1 small thing that is bugging me a lot: printing. I'm on an M1 Macbook Air, and when I do Command+P (which is the default printing command for OSX), it downloads the file I'm attempting to print instead of sending it to preview instead of printing. I have changed the "Applications" setting so it says "Open in Preview" where I can print it from. However, it still downloads the file along with printing it. I have tried doing "Open in Firefox", and it has the same affect where it both prints the document but also downloads this. What can I do to change this, if anything? Thank you!

Something has changed in a Firefox upgrade. I previously could change the print preference through about:config by changing print.tab_modal.enabled from =True to =False. It's not working now, and the default FF print dialogue does not link properly to the printer. I nominate print in Black, and it prints in colour, regardless.

An external partner is embedding one of our websites and has been experiencing the following strange behaviour since FF v97.0:

[See image attached] You can't click any buttons within the iframe when you place the mouse on the button itself. But if you move the mouse ~2cm below the button (red arrow) it acts like it's hovering over the button and you can click it.

There were no code changes on our side and for FF v96.0.3 everything still works as expected. I thought the issue would perhaps be solved in this bug (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1758664) but I tried with version 98.0.2 and it's not fixed there. I'm however hesitant to report a bug in Bugzilla since I can't provide clear reproduction steps (company data).

Thank you for your help!

I have three Firefox profiles: A, B, and C. I tried to give them all different themes. A has a red theme and keeps it consistently. B, my default profile, should have a green theme, and C should have a black theme. However, when I change B's theme to green, the theme on C also changes to green, and when I change the theme on C to black, the theme for B also changes to black. I don't know what I did differently for A! How can I make my profile themes stick for B and C?

Until about a month ago, every time I clicked on a download link to save a file, Firefox asked whether I want to save the file to my downloads folder, or to just open it, which would save it to a folder in my temp folder that would be deleted when I close Firefox.

Now, out of nowhere, it doesn't ask the question anymore, it automatically assumes I want to save it to a folder (instead of "opening" it).

Before anyone tells me to go to Settings -> General -> Applications, and set the file types to "Always ask", I have tried, and there are two problems with it:

  • There are only a few file types in that list. While I can set Firefox to ask when downloading those types of files, anything else (like text files or MP3 files) is saved to the downloads folder without asking. I want it to ask what to do with any file, not just the specific file types in that list.
  • Even for the file types that are available in the list, if I choose to open a file instead of downloading, it is still saved to my downloads folder instead of the temp folder, and is not deleted after I close Firefox.

Also, I'm using Manjaro Linux with KDE, and I also have the Plasma Integration extension installed on Firefox.
